Senior Staff Scientist

Bio

Dr. Adam Rondinone is a senior staff scientist at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences. He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2001, and immediately joined Oak Ridge as a prestigious Wigner Fellow. He is an expert on materials chemistry at the nanoscale and his research is focused on developing novel means to create functional nanomaterials for energy applications. Recent work has explored nanostructured electrochemical catalysts for the conversion of waste to useful products. He has served on various committees in service to ORNL, including two years as a Legislative Fellow in the office of Senator Lamar Alexander working on energy and technology issues. He is also the outreach coordinator for the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences.
